About this title

Synopsis:

Barely 18 years old, Willie Dunne leaves Dublin in 1914 to fight for the Allied cause, largely unaware of the tensions festering back home. A Long Long Way evokes the camaraderie and humour of Willie and his regiment, the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, but also the cruelty of war and divided loyalties many Irish soldiers felt. Discover their experiences through the course of the war, the events of the Easter Rising and how such a political moment came to affect boys off fighting for the King of England on foreign fields.It also charts Willie’s leaving behind of his Sweetheart Gretta, and the effect the war has on his relationship with his father, a member of the Dublin Metropolitan Police and a fervent loyalist.

From the Back Cover:

"Barry succeeds admirably in creating complex individuals who find themselves trapped in a brutal reality... Beautiful and soul-wrenching."
Los Angeles Times

"The story grips, shocks and saddens; but most importantly refuses to be forgotten."
The Times (London)
